2016 BMW M5 vs. 2016 Lexus GS 450h Review

Comparison Review

The BMW M5 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus GS 450h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 450h, the BMW M5 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

With the Lexus GS 450h you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW M5, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW M5 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus GS 450h, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW M5 and the Lexus GS 450h have similar Destination Charges.

Since the BMW M5 is much wider than the Lexus GS 450h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the BMW M5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus GS 450h.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M5 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 450h.

The BMW M5 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 450h, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M5 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus GS 450h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M5 and the Lexus GS 450h. The BMW M5 has less cargo capacity than the Lexus GS 450h, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The BMW M5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 450h.
